Its all happening in the sawah….

Late afternoon is the best time to go for a wander mostly because it’s cooler but also the light is less harsh….the sawah is more than ready for harvesting ….the birds and insects are having a field day…..

The padi (rice plants) are ready for harvesting. 

The cutting is being done by hand..i only saw women doing this work.

A proud and happy farmer

The ripe rice kernels ready for threshing..

Hot dusty and noisy work.

Local children playing in the sawah…i saw many little birds, insects and lizards too fast to capture☺on film.

Close to the padi a new lot of seedlings are being cultivated. The scarecow there to distract the insistent forays of the birds.
